Cancer seems to affect almost everyone, in one way or another, in their lives. Either you yourself are diagnosed with some form of cancer, or a friend, family member, or coworker is. Cancer wreaks havoc on our lives, and trying to combat it seems to damage our health, checkbooks, relationships, and more. What you may not know is that it is very possible that vitamin B17 is the answer to this great societal ill. Read on to learn about how B17 fights cancer, and why this is the first time you’re hearing about it.
A Little Bit About Vitamin B17
B17 is a vitamin that is found in many fruits and vegetables, but is particularly potent in the apricot. The apricot seed (which is found underneath the pit) contains B17 (also known as Laetrile) in the cancer-fighting form of amygdalin. B17 is a powerful cancer-fighter because it is made up of mainly glucose and hydrogen cyanide. Because of these two components, B17 is able to literally inject itself into cancerous cells, where it then poisons and eventually kills these cells via the cyanide. It is essentially a natural form of chemotherapy.
Why B17 is not Being Used in Cancer Treatments
If you’ve heard it once, you’re heard it a million times: there’s profit to be made in the cancer industry. This is the sad truth, and this is why many government agencies, researchers, and physicians have either gone out of their way to hide the effects of vitamin B17, or at the very least ignored the promising cure it may hold. Some physicians have treated cancer patients using B17, but the FDA has forced the positive outcomes to be downplayed.
In addition, the FDA considers Laetrile as an untested treatment, which means it can therefore not be used anymore on people. Although studies have successfully shown the positive effects of Laetrile on cancer tumors in test animals, these encouraging studies have now been barred and dismembered by the FDA.
The Benefits of Eating Right
The power of eating right and incorporating this magic vitamin into your diet has been documented not only in research, but also by personal testimonials. To truly reduce your chances of getting cancer, and to improve your chances of defeating it if currently diagnosed with the disease, the importance of eating right cannot be overstated. It is imperative that you stick to a mainly plant-based diet. Throw out all of the processed food in your kitchen and never look back.
Aim to eat organic/fresh, wholesome ingredients every day. Some of the best items to incorporate into your diet include:
- Aloe gel and/or juice
- Goji berries
- Swiss chard
- Chili peppers
- Large amounts of (organic/raw) fruits and veggies
It is also important to regulate stress levels, which means getting adequate sleep, working out consistently, and meditating (or finding your own personal means of relaxation).
To decrease your chances even more of ever getting cancer, incorporate vitamin B17 into your diet as much as possible. Although it cannot be bought in the form of Laetrile in the United States, you can find B17 supplements in most nutrition stores. Or, stock up on your nectarines, and consume the seed after you’ve finished the fruit.
Cancer is a disease that ruins lives, and is something we all hope to avoid. By eating and living right, and incorporating this magic vitamin into your diet as much as possible, you put yourself way ahead of the game in terms of avoiding cancer altogether.
